A million patients battle against polyclinics

More than one million patients have signed a petition protesting against plans to close hundreds of GP practices to make way for polyclinics.
The BMA is concerned that the new clinics will destroy the relationship between patients and their family doctor.
The signatures, collected by the British Medical Association (BMA) in just three weeks as part of its "Support Your Surgery" campaign, will be presented to Gordon Brown at Downing Street today.
